The Chelsea College of Art and Design is running a series of short interior design courses in Dubai over the month of May. Four separate courses will cover everything from choosing the right lighting, furniture and materials for your space to setting up your own interior design business. The courses will be run by practicing industry professionals from the UK and will take place at the Pullman Hotel.
The Chelsea College of Art and Design is offering one National reader a complimentary place on one of its courses.
The winner can choose between Decorating your Villa or Apartment, which is taking place from May 18 to 20, and Lighting Design for Interiors, which is taking place from May 29 to 31.
